Lamar Jackson’s 2019 Season Was Historic, Even for the Oddsmakers

As the Ravens sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labor as the number one seed in the American Football Conference for the next two weeks, there is already a lot of moments this season no one will soon forget no matter how far Baltimore ends up in the postseason.

While there were plenty of great moments as the team went 14-2, there was one player in particular that took the league by storm in 2019, that being second-year quarterback Lamar Jackson.

If you would have checked any delaware gambling sites in the months of July and August, not many were counting on Jackson to have the huge breakout season that he did, as he is the front-runner to be the league’s MVP that will be announced the night before the Super Bowl.

Just how much did Jackson defy the odds? Let’s look at some of the prop bets that were out during the summer and how Jackson (for the most part) blew through them.

Let’s start with the prop bet of “Total Passing yards in the 2019 Regular Season,” as the oddsmakers had Jackson’s over/under at 3000 yards.

So how did he do? Well he threw for 3127 yards, meaning that if you bet the over you walked away a winner in that bet.

Moving on Jackson’s bet of “Total TD Passes in the 2019 Regular Season” over/under was 17.5, and once again Jackson plowed through that.

Jackson playing in 15 games getting to take week 16 off with everything clinched still threw for 36 touchdowns, most in the AFC. Easy to see if you bet the over, you are taking home easy money.

A third prop bet was Jackson’s “Total Interceptions in the 2019 Regular Season,” with the over/under on that being set at 10.5.

He was careful with the football, and if you bet the under you would have won, as he threw just six picks, three of which came early in the season in an overtime win over the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

Jackson’s “Total Rushing Yards in the 2019 Regular Season” was a fourth prop bet put out by the sportsbooks, with that number being at 775.

Not only did Jackson blast through that with 1206 yards, he led the team overall in rushing. The Baltimore run game was so good they are the first team in over 40 years to average over 200 yards rushing per game.

The final prop bet for Lamar was “Total Rushing TD’s in the 2019 Regular Season,” and the over/under on that was set at 5.5.

Again if you bet the over you were a winner, as Jackson crossed the goal line as a runner seven times in 2019.

So as you can see, it’s one of the most historic seasons in the history of the game at the QB spot.

But it’s not over yet, and Jackson and the Ravens still have plenty more to do now that the playoffs are ready to get rolling.
